Example Forecast 01/02/14 – 02/02/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday’s deep North Atlantic Low of 946 millibars will move to be just off the Coast of Northern Ireland and Western Scotland as Saturday dawns. By Saturday midday the Low will almost be double centered, with one half of the centre dropping down around Central Ireland. Another Low to the West of Greenland in the Labrador Sea at 988 millibars, will also start to raise it’s head as Saturday goes on. By Sunday the Greenland Low will have moved rapidly East to be in the Near Mid-Atlantic at 976 millibars off the Western Irish Coast, this movement, combined with the High pressure of 1028 millibars around the Azores on Saturday will have weakened to 1024 millibars. Nevertheless the High will also contribute to the Greenland Low’s movement, plus the combined influence of the Greenland Low and Azorean High will in turn shunt the Irish Low North to sit between Iceland and Northern Scotland at 964 millibars, before it moves North East into the lower Norwegian Sea, filling a bit as it goes. All this will mean swell everywhere, but getting it clean and with not too much wind will be the key, the early bird often catches the worm! ;0)

OVERALL

Northern Scotland and the East Coast all the way up on Saturday, Sunday on the East Coast may be fun too. The South Coast is also worth a gander, Wales will also be good at times. Meanwhile the South West will be very big on Saturday, so shelter will be key. Getting lucky with the winds and some early starts would be our call. As ever, make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The South Coast and the East Coast are the best places for you, as the South West will just be way too big for you on Saturday, as will Wales, Sunday will still be big in the South West and Wales, head for ubber sheltered spots if you are down in that neck of the woods. Remember don’t go out of your comfort zone, be safe.

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
